McDonald's in New Zealand has launched a McVeggie burger that isn't suitable for all vegetarians

1 month ago   |   By Business Insider

The meat-free McVeggie burger has been launched by McDonald's New Zealand this week.
However, the new product comes with a proviso from McDonald's that the non-meat burger is "not vegetarian due to our cooking method."
David Howse, the general manager for McDonald's New Zealand, told The Guardian that the vegetarian patty is cooked in the same oil as animal meat, like the McChicken patty.
"This product is intended for flexitarians, rather than being vegan or vegetarian, but for some vegetarians, our preparation method will be OK," he said.
